Re: GD: your favorite THE OTHER ONE? for a hater mix
If you want to play Grateful Dead that listeners with punk rock DIY leanings might not immediately recognize as the band they love to hate,
Try these alive and evolving versions-
THAT'S IT FOR THE OTHER ONE:
!968-08-23 Shrine Auditorium - 4 minutes and 33 seconds of pure energy, stripped-down to the essence... my favorite version. Punky for sure.
1967-10-22 at Winterland... great sound, and alternate lyrics "breakin' outta jail" (?)
1968-01-22 Crystal Ballroom again different words, and edgy!
1968-10-12 Avalon Ballroom is alright too...
also 1967 versions of Cream Puff War, Cold Rain And Snow, Golden Road
Keep Rolling By (on Birth of the Dead),
Saint Stephen > 1968-08-21; 1968-10 -12; 1968-10-20
THE OTHER ONE is about how the Grateful Dead and friends stopped worrying and learned to exist as drop-outs, after meeting Neal Cassady, Ken Kesey, The Hell's Angels.
(wish list of live gigs... why wouldn't one want to have been at the heady dawn of the freak-out scene - given the choice... rather than the latter days?)
